Eves Tories Restore Education Tax Credit

TORONTO, June 26, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – With an election call looming, the PC government of Ernie Eves has restored the full value of the Equity in Education Tax Credit, enabling more middle income parents to afford the kind of schooling their children deserve. The credit, crafted by then-finance minister Jim Flaherty two years ago, will rise to 20% of tuition per child in 2003 and to 50% by 2006, for a maximum of $3,500 per pupil. It stands to benefit most the middle income families of 100,000 pupils in Ontario’s 733 private schools.  Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty again vowed that […]

Unborn Florida Child Will Be Allowed to Live

ORLANDO, June 26, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The unborn child of a mentally handicapped rape victim will be allowed to live, a Florida judge has decided. The child, who is at six months gestation, will not have a separate guardian appointed for him or her, as Governor Jeb Bush had hoped. But the baby will be allowed to come to term under the supervision of the mother’s guardian, Patti Jarrell.  Ms. Jarrell actually recommended to the judge that, “completing the pregnancy/delivering the child is in J.D.S.‘s best interest.” (J.D.S. is the name under which the mother appears in court documents.)  Edward […]

Abortion Boat Continues On Its Destructive Mission Against Pro-Life Poland

LONDON, June 29, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) –  A floating Dutch abortion boat that had been detained in a Polish port has been allowed to continue on its mission after Women on Waves, the group in charge of the ship, was fined $3000 and had its medicines sealed by customs officials.  Women on Waves, which issued a press release last week indicating it intended to offer drug-induced abortions off the coast of predominantly Catholic Poland, was given the fine for failing to follow harbourmaster instructions while docking.  The group will be free to access its lethal drugs, including the abortifacient morning after […]

Gay Activist Anti-Catholic Lawyer Awarded With Top Ontario Judge Position

TORONTO, June 26, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The homosexual activist lawyer who forced a Catholic school in Oshawa to allow a homosexual prom date will soon be sworn in as a member of the Ontario Superior Court.  The appointment of Mr. David Corbett, a well-known homosexual activist, has earned the federal Liberal government the dubious distinction of appointing the first “openly gay” judge to a superior court bench.  Judge Corbett has, among other things, been a member of the “Foundation for Equal Families,” a homosexual activist group which pursues court challenges. He has been involved in numerous cases concerning homosexual rights […]

New Zealand Legalizes Prostitution

Wellington, New Zealand, Jun. 25 (CWNews.com/LifeSiteNews.com) – New Zealand’s Parliament on Wednesday passed a law decriminalizing prostitution despite efforts by pro-family and faith-based groups. The Prostitution Reform Bill passed by a single vote after lawmakers were allowed a conscience vote that allowed them to choose for themselves rather than along party lines. The new law legalizes solicitation of prostitution for adults over 18. It also decriminalizes “pimping,” owning a brothel, and the earning of a living off of a prostitute. Prostitutes will now be covered by employment and health laws and brothels will have to be licensed. Critics of the […]
